Boxcarr Handmade Cheese is a first generation family farm and creamery founded by Austin and Dani Genke along with Austin's sister Samantha. In their newly built 2900 square foot creamery on the farm they create Italian inspired small batch cheeses. Surrounded by long established farms they source their Jersey and Holstein cow's milk from a nearby neighbor, and the Alpine, Nubian and Sannen goat's milk from another. Although somewhat new to the cheesemaking scene, Boxcarr has quickly made a name for themselves in the cheese community.
